Are you looking for the BariatricPal Store? Go now!

Excitement builds...and a few other tidbits



Recommended Posts

Well all, since I hit goal this week, things took a turn for the better.

I've been looking to go back to work now for a while. I won't go back into actively practicing dentistry, but want to go into practice management and consulting. My hope was to travel quite a bit, and I've had several options present themselves that I've been interviewing for.

After speaking with a long time colleague the other day, he made a few suggestions that I acted upon. The result? I've received four more calls to interview for positions I never would have considered before, each challenging in their own right and outside my comfort zone, but hey-isn't that what this new life is about?

There was a fifth call I received from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. Now, if you know me, you'll know it has been my intention for YEARS to move to NC! This position is at the dental school overseeing the post-grad dental students who are completing their General Practice Residency. To have a hand in shaping the future of a profession that treated me so well is damned exciting!!! (And let's face it-- the possibility of reduced or free tuition to UNC for one or two of my kids is freaking appealing too if I was on staff!!!)

My point is this--- never say never. Never say die. Don't quit. Don't give up. Don't cry uncle or wave a white flag.

So many personal things are changing in my life and family life...kids leave to begin their own life, relationships change or go away. The only thing we have control over is ourselves and doing something to shape or destiny.

Don't forget you. Don't squander the opportunity. Don't take it for granted. Don't be with people who drain you. Lots of don'ts.

But how about this:::

DO love yourself.

DO live outside your comfort zone.

DO expect to succeed.

DO expect the people who surround you to bless and enhance your life.

DO know that anyone can change.

DO know that you are worth it!!!

It's pretty simple, really.

Look in the mirror and just say "I Do" to yourself.

And then as you make it happen, you'll grow like the tulips coming up in Spring.

Lol. Maybe it's the coffee at 8:30 sitting in Starbucks and watching hockey stream while I work that brought about my revelation...post-284996-14806456115376_thumb.jpg

This is great advice - we often sell ourselves short.

To quote Stewie Griffin: "Whether you believe you can or you can't - you're right!"
